Hey grandpa this is Lilly which you may know as you’ve been watching over us since this day of 2000 we don’t know each other but I do know you were a hero dad doesn’t really talk about you which I know is because it’s hard for him but from what I have heard you were one of few people who really cared about his he didn’t see it then but he really gets it now. Today would be 20 years since it happened and to this day he gets emotional when talking about you I know he really misses you and I wish I could’ve meet you but you are the reason he is who he is today so your not just a hero for that day but for every day after as well. I hope your happy and watching his progress he really tries to make you proud. We love you grandpa.
